- What is Technology Education?
Technology Education is the means by which we teach students the Technology and Engineering components of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education which is found in the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology. Technology Education is a body of knowledge separate from but related to the sciences, with Specific Programs Guidelines (Technology Education K-12 ) and certification requirements (CSPG 65 – Technology Education ). It should also be understood that Technology Education offers unique opportunities to give relevance to numerous academic content areas.
